A solitary goal from the Ukrainian Yarmolenko own goal leads Wales to the second World Cup in its history

The Country of Wales and Gareth Bale will finally be in Qatar, a milestone they have not achieved since Sweden 1958. It was one of the three World Cup places, the last European, which was still to be decided and whose ticket has been sealed by the team led by Robert Page. The narrow victory of the 'Dragons' team against Ukraine, whose country is still suffering from the Russian invasion and which days ago had left Scotland on the road, has allowed them to enter the history of Welsh football.

Yarmolenko's own goal, after half an hour of play, was enough for the Welsh to achieve their greatest success in recent times. Pass with which the doubts about a hypothetical withdrawal of Gareth Bale, who completed the 90 minutes of the match played at the Cardiff City Stadium, are cleared. With this pass there will be a British duel against England to be framed in group B of the Qatar World Cup along with Iran and the United States.
